The world around me is a continual wash of the senses. I am particularly a visual person, so colour first and foremost grabs me. But then shape, line, form and texture are next. I love the tactile nature of texture, but also love the affects of light on texture, with its moving shadows and tonal changes of colour. I am fascinated with peoples ability to design and build THE most amazing structures. From the simplicity of a garden to the grandeur of a mud brick home. I am affected by the sounds and smells of the world. Although they can't be built in as such to a piece of art their experience is embedded in my approach to making.
